For London's Freedom of the City Festival Mattin's Sakada materializes in a big band incarnation (Eddie Prevost, Mark Wastell, Margarida Garcia, Rhodri Davies) Here the expanded Sakada navigate a more restrained and open territory. Droning passages rise and ebb , the sound folding over on itself, while minute textures dance on the edges. The emphasis on bowed sounds brings to mind the slow churning of a Morton Feldman composition. An intense document of precisely restrained improvisation.
